Vetical Text Alignment
Hi Folks,
is there any possibility in GIMP to align a text not vertically at the bottom of a text box (there are options for left, right, center and fill but that's only the horizontal alignment). The motivation is, that I change a text in an image quite often and it whould "align itself" if it whould always be aligned at the bottom of the textbox.

Thank you in advance!

RE: Vetical Text Alignment
If you have one line line of text, its distance to the bottom of the text box won't change if you change the text, so the alignment you do with your first text should be valid with other versions of the text?

I have mutliple lines in a textbox and they break automatically, when they arive the right border. So when i have i.e. 2 lines, the space to the bottom is larger as if i have 3 lines.

RE: Vetical Text Alignment
If you "clear all text" before entering the new text, the text box will resize around the new text. So the bottom line will be at a fixed distance from the bottom of the box. To align the box you can set a pair of guides at one corner of the first box, so if you change the box size you just have to drag the new box to have its corner snap again on the guides.
